The Gwaii Haanas Legacy Pole is a 42-foot monumental pole being carved to honor the 20th anniversary of the Gwaii Haanas Agreement, the cornerstone of a groundbreaking cooperative management relationship between the Haida Nation and the Government of Canada.

The pole will be raised in Gwaii Haanas on August 15, 2013 followed by a feast in Skidegate on August 17. This will be the first pole raised in the Gwaii Haanas region in over 130 years.
